About the folks at Tendercare Beds
Greg Verlander CEO
Greg Verlander became principal and CEO of TenderCare Beds in June of 2009. Several years before, my father had a stroke and later was released to come home with the need of a hospital bed. The bed was set up in his home and the visual impact was overwhelming. It not only affected my father, but to entire family as well. It was a stark reminder of just how ill my father had become. The room he once called his sanctuary now resembled more of a clinical environment.
I knew there had to be a better option.
Not long after that, I met inventor Gary Owens. We shared stories of how no one in the medical industry had addressed the emotional needs of individuals and that everyone had the right to feel like your home was your “home” not an institution… Our mission from then on was to change that cold environment back to a “home”. Whether it be in a long term care facility, or a room in the home. At that point TenderCare Beds set out to make a difference in the lives of people needing a hospital bed.
Greg Verlander , CEO
My name is Gary Owens. My background is woodworking. My wife Gina and I were married in 1994. In February of 1998 our live changed forever, due to an extraordinarily debilitating disease. Out of medical necessity, Gina spent all of her days since then confined to our home, in bed.To make her feel better, I designed and built her a beautiful headboard for her bed. From that effort, TENDERCARE BEDS was born. Our Goal is to create a company small enough to give personal service, but large enough to build beds for everyone who wants one.
